Title: Stepbrother Dearest
Author: Penelope Ward

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you. 

When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. 

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. 
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. 
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. 

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. 

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. 

It had been years since I’d seen Elec. 

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. 

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel. 

**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

Stepbrother Dearest begins when Greta gets to meet her seventeen year old stepbrother. And he's not at all what she thought he was going to be. He's drop dead gorgeous, but with a horrible attitude. He instantly starts tormenting her, and she doesn't understand why. Things go from bad to worse over time, and she can't keep her attraction hidden. After several months together, this two end up not seeing each other for seven years. Then tragedy strikes and brings them back together. But have things changed between them? 

The book was very interesting. I really did like it. I loved the plot line, even though at times I felt really sorry for Greta. It felt like she got the short end of the deal in a lot of different ways. 

I felt like these two people came together and ended up having a whole lot of circumstances get in their way. And the only thing that really bugged me about it was at times it felt like the dialog was rushed, and I couldn't connect with the characters at times. Other than that the book was very enjoyable, and I love how unique it was.
